[ ♪ theme ♪ ] [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> john: this is the "bill press show." good morning. this is current tv. i'm john fuglesang filling in for bill from our nation's capital right here in washington, d.c. we have a spectacular show for you. i promise you i'll do my best to make sure you don't miss bill one little bit. from the bipartisan center, dan glickman and congressman joins us this morning as well as jonathan on his excellent new piece on the post-election america in "new york" magazine. zeke miller, share our strength chief officer and comedian dino, your muslim pal. we'll be having a lot of great guests, talking about mitt romney's ultimate screw you which he gifted us with yesterday and general petraeus, the c.i.a. had no idea when he said i wanted to tap that, he meant something completely different. let's go to lisa ferguson for a current news update. >> hey john. always good to have you on the show. good morning everyone. the president is dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy today
romney in a minute, but first listen to what john boehner said after the election. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. let's rise above the this function and do the right thing for our country. >> later john maynard told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person -- john boehner told diane sawyer he is the most reasonable, responsible person in washington and the president knows that. the fiscal cliff looms at the end of the year. will we reach a compromise before then, charles? >> i do not think it will be a comprehensive compromise. i think they will be able to patch something together. i think they will be able to agree on it true tax reform sometime next year. i think they will get passet the cliff if -- the cliff. if he insists on raising rates, he will be stymied. >> what is the message? >> it is a mixed message. i think we all agree the corner stone of the president from message is we raise taxes on those earning over $250,000. mitt romney pledged to repeal obamacare. these are the e
is that john of the other republicans ever liked mitt romney and he didn't do anything during the campaign to endear himself to them. don't forget, he attacked them all in the primaries. this is kind of the revenge of the clowns here. he knocked them off one at a time. he sort of knocked them over in iowa and elsewhere around the campaign trail. number two, his campaign was based on a negative. it was based on the idea that he would have to win because president obama was so bad. there was no philosophy to it. mitt romney's campaign was kind of the end of the line of the conservative era that began coherently with ronald reagan in 1980. mitt romney was the ultimate remainder man. that's why they have an easier time of dumping on him right now. >> so the clown car has backed up to run over mitt romney. that's the image for the night tonight. >> yes, it is. >> like that woman who didn't like her husband, remember she drove over her husband in the parking lot and drove over him again. i don't want to get involved in that legal case but i do remember the pictures. let's go to john heilemann he
an excellent job and is grateful for her service. yes, john. >> jay, this investigation has been going on for months. how is it that the white house didn't have any idea of this until the day after the election, and then congress a few days later? >> i would prefer you to the fbi. they have -- as i understand it protocols in place for when they notify the legislative and executive branches of investigations. and, you know, it is simply a fact that the white house was not aware of the situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday, and the situation regarding general allen until friday. so, you know, the fbi is the place to go in terms of an explanation of the protocols they follow. but i understand that that is the answer that they will give, that there are protocols they follow, that govern how they inform the various branches of government of these kinds of investigations. >> do you understand how people would think this is utterly bizarre, i mean the day after the election, and the anger you're hearing on capitol hill that they didn't know this was going on, at least the timin
passed already, with those rates and john boehner responded. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this and i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. >> i think in stead of the house moving on the senate bill, the senate ought to move on the house bill. >> so the debate has been engaged. it's going to be an interesting conversation on friday to get it started. >> that's right. he'll have the senate leaders and house leaders over to talk about this. one of the things that was so clear from that press conference was that the president is saying let's move this forward, let's move this forward now. he is certainly realizing that when you look at the four years that he has ahead of him, really it about the next 18 months to two years. that's when he has a mandate that, when he has political capital to spend. quickly he also wants to forestall some of these tax hikes that could come as early as january. john boehner initially said, lis
senate aristocracy of republicans which is who are they worried about beating them? someone like john mccain isn't that worried. and is a little bit off the reservation and he has been the most vocal voice pushing this in certain ways. and it's hard to see whether those incentives are going to rein him in. the question is do other people who do care about their political future and have national aspirations, as we said, if they're more likely to walk away from this conspiracy that's going happening. >> we saw harry reid shut down the idea of there being a senate select committee, a mega investigation along the lines of watergate on this. we also saw resistance to that idea from richard mur, susan collins, joe lieberman, from republican secretary -- republican speaker of the house john boehner. i felt like that all isolated john mccain a lot. but you know, maybe he stands alone in terms of his influence on foreign policy matters. >> i think he does. but there's distance emerging between him and where everyone else is. and partly, we should remember this was very -- this was wielded as a c

. john allen's e-ils has painted an unflattering picture of america's top leaders. >> gen. petraeus resigned but gen. john allen is still on the job with the president's support. >> the president will continue to have his confidence. >> would it be a better idea if everyone involved just stepped down? we talk to a u.s. army veteran and ceo of concern veterans of america. he joined us from the twin cities. pete, we know you served under both the guys. what do you think? >> well, eats a crummy situation, no doubt. but i did serve under both of them. i couldn't hold them in prior professional regard. they are both mission first, and these are difficult personal circumstances but at the end of the day i don't think it precludes them from being professionals in their field. we are talking about the number of e-mails, don't ask me why i was asking entertainment tonight last night. it was on in the background. but it reads like a soap opera and the media feeds it and i don't think any of it has to do with how well these men have served, the years they have given this country on the battlef
spreads from general petraeus to his replacement general john allen the top commander in afghanistan. his nomination to become the supreme allied commander in nato is side tracked by e-mails with tampa socialite jill kelley. >> this has the elements in some ways of a hollywood movie or a trashy novel but the bottom line, you're talking about families, youpds standing military leaders and the impact it has on the country and overall questions about the fbi. >> the pentagon says it has uncovered 20 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate documents exchanged between general allen and kelley the woman's whose complaints first triggered the investigation that brought down petraeus. what about paula broadwell's role? late monday night with her consent federal agents served broadwell's home for hours, carting out boxes and bags as they are wrapping up their investigation. >> defense secretary leon panetta on route to australia was the first top administration official to comment on the petraeus departure. >> i think he took the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia w
secretary of state rich williamson and syndicated radio talk show host john boutzer. how much injury they inflict on hamas? i want to know if the total blowout is possible? >> yes, it is, larry. why that is critical is because egypt is involved profoundly in this problem. morici, the new le elely electe president of egypt, is in the muslim brothers. the muslim brothers and hamas are directly related. this is about egypt and the 1979 peace treaty. >> right. i'm going to get back to the whole issue of the spreading war. but i'm just real interested in the assessment, ambassador williamson, welcome back, that israel can just inflict massive, permanent damage on hamas and their alleged military. >> well, larry, first of all, i think it's really important to take a step back. we've been involved in a presidential election that sucked up the oxygen. hamas is a group that's recognized as a terrorist organization by the u.s. government, the israeli government and the european union, has increased shelling in areas of israel over recent weeks. they now have shelled tel aviv and 180 missiles w
no reason why employers can't cover their employees with health care. >> john, i will say this to you, this is not speculation. these are facts, the heads of these companies are actually making these moves and cutting down and then you've got perfect example of the guy that owns the 40 restaurants in florida, all the denny's, he says i'm going to cut back and add 5% to the bills of my customers to keep those insure that had i already have on the books. this is real. >> yeah. this is not wild speculation. this guy at denny's says it cost him an extra $5,000 per employee per year and says if i have to cover all of my employees, that's about $175,000 per restaurant. he said a lot of my restaurants don't make $175,000. so here is a guy who literally cannot afford obamacare and what he's saying is i'm going to have to cut guys back to 28 hours, those at the front. some have to get a second job because they can't afford to live just on 28 hours a week of pay. this is real life situations in these companies and the problem we have is just like tracy said, we had no health care reform. all we
the other way. john boldin, not susan rice, would be the hot talk for secretary of state. war clouds would be overhead and the bugles blaring would be marching to iran. just think self-deportation would be the name of the game for immigration. voter suppression would be the toast of the town, or certain parts of town. the extinction of health care would be hr-1, up there on the front burner for congressional action. just think, if the election had gone the other way the rich would be basking in the best tax protection known to man, a real-life, genuine mandate to leave them and their money alone. but a funny thing happened on the way to the white house. people voted for tax fairness. they voted to make the rich pay their share, specifically voted that way for one thing because the republicans kept warning them not to. and so it came to pass today that president obama said just that at his press conference. give the middle class their tax cuts, speaker boehner. cut it loose so they can go christmas shopping, senator mcconnell. it's what the people voted for. that's why they voted for me. th
on booktv, a presentation of this year's paolucci bagehot book award winner, john fonte, author of "sovereignty or submission." during the dinner mr. fonte delivered a lecture based on his book. it's a little over an hour. [applause] >> thank you, mark. i'm very honored, and it's very flattering to be in such good company in previous winners of the paolucci/bagehot award. it's also a great honor to receive this from the intercollegiate studies institute which has done wonderful work in sustaining the core principles of american civic life. i also wish to extend condolences to the isa community for the recent loss of a greaptd lady and scholar, ann paolucci. finally, i'd like to acknowledge that henry paolucci was a stalwart defender of american national sovereignty, and i hope that -- he would have been pleased in presenting this award to me, as pleased as i am in receiving this. i'm going to proceed as follows. : first, i'm going to talk a little bit about what i call philadelphia sovereignty. second, i'm going to examine the ideas of the global governance project which challen

corn knackster kornacki. army wives meets john hecarry. three ring circus, mission impossible the cohen brothers. the extramarital affair/political drama that enveloped former cia director david petraeus gets more extraordinary by the minute. this morning washington woke up to the news that the top commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters unt
is representative john heck and peter king. here is their interpretation of the closed door hearings. >> the initial talking points put together in unclassified format at the house intelligence committee initially did state that al qaeda affiliated groups were involved. however, by the time we understand that went through its editing process after it left langley that reference was taken out. >> the fact is the best estimate of the intelligence community on september 15th and 16th was that there was direct al qaeda involvement. that was taken out. to me, again, if i had to presume i would say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out. because there was nobody in the director of national intelligence office. nobody in the cia that did it. so, it was someone else that did it. >> someone in the administration. if you go to the front page of foxnews.com right now you will see the big story on there that's racing raising the question in that piece. we will be speaking to peter king to try to figure out who the administration got the intelligence information their hands and said, okay
is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an immediate political question for the democrats as to what happens to his u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. senator kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. the post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terrorist attack. but the administration and the in

what you really think, don't let john king and outsiders question us. we're just going to have rens priebus or somebody from fox question us so we don't let people know what we think. i don't think democrats and liberals are having a problem letting people know this is what we think about choice or these sort of things. tell them whatever we think. the republicans are, like, let's have four debates, not let them know what we think and move to the middle and pretend we're on the middle instead of on the extreme right. >> abby, one of the things that has really brought to me that this is not my being overly cynical, but that they're not really changing, was something you said. you revealed that your father's faced a backlash because of his more centrist views. you told politico, "he was supposed to speak at a fund-raiser in florida and the rnc contacted him and said because you were speaking out for the need for a third voice you're no longer invited to represent us at a fund-raiser. so he's actually been disinvited to a lot of events." >> i kind of spilled the beans there. not sure i
for contemplation here at the edge of washington's fiscal cliff as republicans like john baner have not months or weeks but days to decide if they overturn decades of party orthodox and tax increases to head off something worse across the board spending cuts and tax increases that could throw the economy into a recession. look at the overall debt in excess of 16 trillion dollars. part of the debate whether or not social security and medicare should be on the table. seed on the phone from buzzard's bay. republican line. >> good morning. steve, we've got so many groups and caucus they're all saying now you have your it's time for me to have mine. once that group gets what they want the next group says, well the first two got what they want and this is what we want. this, i don't see this ending. it's very sad situation and unfortunately i don't see much of a future as long as we have all these groups and caucuses. can i give you constructive criticism. i've been watching c-span now for decades and especially "washington journal". if i don't see it live i'll watch the tape. the new gentlemen you
compromise early on? >> reporter: senator john mccain has also called for a select water gaet-style attack. senator carl levin says such a committee is not necessary. also troubling why the fbi did not alert congress about the petraeus's extramarital affair. they say they have protocols when it notifies the legislative and executive branches. jenna: good information for us doug, thank you. we have more on this now. rick: more on benghazi and the testimony we're expecting to hear from general petraeus. we're joined by charlie hirt, a columnist at "the washington times." this will behind closed doors as doug was reporting. i wonder how much of this information is going to get out? certainly the public wants to hear if general petraeus is going to change his story at all? >> certainly i can understand why they chose to make it behind closed doors because it would be the most watched testimony of any hearing i think probably in the last couple years on capitol hill. but it is curious. i don't know what their the real explanation they're going to have to give for why they would put it behind cl
something for which there was no basis if facts? >> reporter: earlier today, republican senator john mccain joined lindsey graham and kelly ayotte vowing to stop rice's potential nomination as secretary of state. while the president would not speculate about his choice to replace outgoing secretary hillary clinton, he reacted angrily to the republican charges and dug in hard enough to suggest he may name rice. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house. in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham a others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. >> reporter: when pressed by fox news in his own role reacting to the terror attack the president did not directly answer questions raised by some relatives of the four americans killed in bening about whether he did enough to save their lives. >> i would like for you to address the families, if you can, on 9/11 as commander-in-chief. did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives?
